Why Judy Spasser chose Carbondale

I am a divorced 56 year old. I built this house in 2006. I live in the main house with my cats Abbey and Bella. I've lived and enjoyed the Valley for over 30 years. I love the natural surrounding, alternative lifestyle of a large City and access to the pristine mountains and cultural events. The house just has a great vibe!!!!

A Pleasant Surprise

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage House, near Carbondale, is a spacious apartment over three garage bays at the back of a lovely home. It is accessed by an indoor, carpeted staircase. Parking is right outside the door. There are nice views from the den and bedroom windows. The kitchen and bath have an updated look and are very functional. The kitchen is small:one cook at a time. The bathroom shower gets an A+. Air conditioning keeps the apartment comfortable in the daytime. At night there is a wonderful breeze though the screened windows. The internet and TV work well.

The home is in a quiet, gated community with a golf course (and, of course, the Roaring Fork River). It is a pleasant and safe place to walk and bike. We ate at two of the owner's recommended restaurants, and I second her recommendations. We used the Carriage House as a peaceful retreat after a vigorous family reunion. It was perfect for our purpose. We plan to return. M.T.S.

Awesome Stay

  • 5 of 5

This great place not only met but exceeded my expectations. The owner's description was exactly as described. The apartment, which is attached to a beautiful home, has top notch flooring, appliances, furniture, etc. If you're looking for a peaceful place to stay look no's the Carriage House!

Just what looking for

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for some real relaxation time. We got just what we wanted. The Carriage House was perfect. It was clean, cozy and very comfortable. We found it very quiet and enjoyable here. The owner recommended some great places to eat in Carbondale.

We had a great time checking out the hot springs in Glenwood Springs, biking, sight seeing and just enjoying kicking back without any of the everyday rat race! Wonderful time - wishing we were there again!

Carriage House, Carbondale/Roaring Fork Valley, CO

  • 5 of 5

When we tell friends that we are returning to Carbondale, Colorado to spend a week, we get usually get a blank look. People know about Aspen or Glenwood Springs but not Carbondale, which may be one of the reasons it is such an excellent place to visit. Carbondale offers great bicycling on beautifully maintained bike paths and roads, hiking, fly fishing, excellent restaurants with a range of prices, friendly people, a local rodeo in the summer, music, a family friendly downtown, a temperate climate, and incomparable views of the majestic Mt. Sopris. You will see more residents than tourists in this town. An excellent public transportation system runs frequently up and down the valley from early morning until after dark.

The Carriage House, which is conveniently close to Carbondale, Colorado, is an attractively furnished, quiet, clean, comfortable and spacious apartment which works well as a base from which to explore the Roaring Fork Valley or just hang out and read. The modern kitchen is fully equipped and has sufficient dishes to have friends over for a meal. Handsome landscaping and proximity to the bike path are additional reasons for saying at the Carriage House.

There are unobstructed 180° views from the windows of the stunning Roaring Fork Valley. Step outside for 360° views, and on a clear night, more stars than you thought possible in the skies.

Judy, the owner, greeted us warmly. She has a wealth of information about the Valley and shares our enthusiasm for this best kept secret in Colorado. She is an excellent hostess, available to answer questions, but never intrusive.

We highly recommend both the Carriage House and Carbondale.

Everything she says it is and more

  • 5 of 5

We came here for a short winter sports trip and really enjoyed the property. It is conveniently located between Glenwood Springs and Carbondale for easy access to any number of outdoor recreational activities. It is in an upstairs garage apartment (do not let that dissuade you) that truly has all the amenities. The kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and living room are all top-end construction and well-kept. The owner is everything you would want: very easy to deal, helpful, but otherwise totally non-intrusive. This place is a really nice size for a couple and very romantic. The kitchen allowed us to make some of our own meals, but there are plenty of nice restaurant choices up-valley in Carbondale and Basalt that are better than Glenwood, but the Hot Springs are great.
